A wish can change a child's life and in Serenity's case, it not only affected hers, but all those that were able to witness the magic of her smile when her wish finally came true!
Shy and sweet Serenity wished for her very own computer to use when she met with her Make-A-Wish volunteers. In the weeks that followed Serenity's first meeting with the Make-A-Wish team, Madison Middle School decided to adopt her wish. For weeks the students, faculty and staff came together to raise enough money to make sure Serenity's wish came true, and at the end of their fundraising, they invited the staff and Serenity's family to the school for a celebration-- including a talent show. In her honor, students sang, danced and performed. Throughout the program, Serenity was mesmerized and finally she asked if she could sing too. When she stood on stage to say thank you and sing her ABC’s to them in return, a gymnasium of hundreds of students was completely silent.
When Serenity finally saw her computer and other electronics, her smile spoke a million words of gratitude!
